After a speed study was conducted by the city of Weslaco’s engineering department, the speed limit on S. Westgate Drive from 18th Street to Mile 5 North Road will increase to 45 MPH. The new speed limit will be in effect this Friday, Oct. 14.

As part of the study, our engineer and team evaluated roadway conditions, collected traffic volumes, and completed a field speed survey within the area. The study showed the proper speed limit in this portion of our city should be 45 MPH, and an ordinance was enacted to reflect the updated speed limit.
